From this study (3 days ago):
Lasix drained my pottasium down to 3.0 within days. I feel so weak, confused, no memory of what I did an hour ago. I am extraordinarily weak in muscles, especially in the legs and hips, lower back hurts.
From this study (4 months ago):
The only drug I stopped taking was Zofran, which was given to me via IV push to prevent severe nausea associated with IVIG infusion (Privigen) . All others, including mestinon, were continued.
